    In response to RockScully's comment:

    Did anyone see an uncomfortable Dungy when Rodney was praising NE's D?  LOL

    He said being at home for Denver will be the difference and he ignored how poorly Denver matches up vs NE.   Sure, Tony. Yes, Denver wins it going away vs the Pats and BB. 

    Personally, if it comes to that, I LOVE the underdog role with the media and everyone rooting for Denver. It plays perfectly into this team's hands.

     

     I did see that.  Dungey looked like he would just as soon die than admit that NE's defense is begining to look like a force.  I whole-heartedly agree that the underdog role would be ideal for the Pats if they end up going to Denver.

         Hey Jints! Sorry about your wildly unpredictable Giants. I could never get a handle on that team, all year. One week, they'd go into San Francisco, and crush the 49ers. The next, they get buried in Cincinnati! What a weird season!

         But, I'm sure that the Packers are relieved that the G-men are gone. Despite the wild up and down year, I believe that the Giants, as a 6th seed, would have gone into Green Bay, and trounced the Packers again! After that, the sky would have, once again, been the limit for them. 

         My guess is that they know it.

         Too much skating on thin ice...and it finally caught up with them.

         The G-men would be foolish to let GM Jerry Reese, or Tom Coughlin go. They have lots of holes. They need to address their pass-rush, DE, DL, OL, and CB. Osi's best days are behind him. Justin Tuck's knees don't appear able to take the strain. Plus, teams were very successful running against the Giants. They need a stout DT, and/or ILB to shut that down.

    Re: The Time Has Come

    Frank, don't get all worked up.  Rusty was clearly into that wine early last night.  By rough count, the Pats were under center in about 15 of their first 25 plays against the Jags and about 15 of their first 28 plays against Miami.  So there was no big difference in use of the "shotgun spread" early in the game.  Later in the Miami game, with a three TD lead, the Pats ran a bit more with Brady under center as you'd expect given the situation; the Pats also had a hurry-up drive to end the first half in Jax, which also used more passing and spread formations, again as the situation called for.

    Another of Rusty's big bugaboos besides the use of the shotgun spread is the subbing of running backs.  I haven't counted who was in on every play, but against Jax in the first half they ran Ridley 7 times, Woodhead 3 times, and Bolden 3 times.  Against Miami in the first half they ran Ridley 10 times, Vereen 8 times, and Woodhead 3 times.  So they subbed pretty freely in Miami too, with Vereen and Woodhead playing a pretty prominent role alongside Ridley.  

    Lastly, Brady threw 22 times in the first half against Miami and 24 against Jax.  The run-pass mix in the first half against Miami was a little more equal than the run-pass mix against Jax in the first half, but that mostly had to do with the hurry-up drive that ended the first half in Jax, which resulted in a lot of passing on the final TD drive of the half--again as the situation called for. 

    The big difference in the play of the offense was the O-line: a much stronger performance against Miami than against Jax.  

    Defense was also better in the Miami game.  The pressure was very good against Miami, but the Pats were sending 5 or 6 a lot, which is something they rarely do.  They must have seen a weakness on the film, since that's a strategy they haven't employed much.  Or maybe it's something they may feel they can do more with Francis coming on strong and Jones healthy again?  Will be interesting to see what they do in the playoffs with the pass rush.  I was surprised, though, to see so many defensive plays with five or more rushing the QB. It paid off against Miami . . . not sure it would work against every team.
